Cuban standout Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez has been officially declared a free agent, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (via Twitter). However, the hurler does not have U.S. Treasury clearance yet to negotiate with MLB teams yet, tweets Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times.
Late last week, Gonzalez threw for teams in Tijuana and Ben Cherington was reportedly the only GM in attendance. However, the Red Sox aren't the only team interested in the right-hander. Several other clubs are said to be in the mix, including the Dodgers, who sent their three top scouts to watch the audition on Thursday.
